Dragon Lee is the NXT North American Champion, but he had to miss New Year’s Evil for a good reason. He had visa issues, prohibiting him from leaving Mexico. It appears that those problems are in the past now.

Sean Sapp posted on Fightful’s paywall to let fans know that Dragon Lee’s situation is apparently all better now. He is set to be on this week’s NXT show.

Dragon Lee will also be in action, as he defends his NXT North American Title against Lexis King. That should give him a good match to make his return with.

It would appear Dragon Lee’s visa situation got handled, as he is slated to defend the North American Title against Lexis King in the show’s main event.


We will have to see what happens in this situation. Dragon Lee was not slated for a North American Title match at New Year’s Evil, as he was booked in a multi-man tag team match. Still, it is going to be nice to have him back.

Dragon Lee was called up to the main roster, where he is a SmackDown Superstar. His reign as North American Champion isn’t the only main roster instance of holding that gold, because Dominik Myserio just completed a run with the title that lasted over 65 days.

We will have full coverage of the event this week over in our WWE NXT results hub. You never know what will break next, but we will be here with all of the headlines you need.
